If you are heading to Kenya with your kids, and are worried there may not be enough for them to do, introduce them to scuba diving. For kids aged 8+, Diving the Crab offers a wide range of diving options to create unforgettable underwater adventures!
Starting at the age of 8, kids can take their first dip into the underwater world with the PADI Bubblemaker. They will be in safe and shallow waters, to a maximum depth of 2 meters, to experience the unique sensation of being weightless while making bubbles!
As they hit 10, kids can embark on an exciting journey with the PADI Junior Open Water Diver course. They will learn the essential skills to explore the mesmerizing reefs up to 12 meters deep. Once certified, they can sign in for the PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver course.
Once they reach 12, the adventure deepens as they become a PADI Junior Open Water Diver, allowing them to dive to depths of 18 meters. The PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver course comes next, certifying them to explore down to a maximum depth of 21 meters. For those who can’t get enough of the underwater world, they can enroll in the PADI Junior Rescue Diver course, preparing them to handle emergency situations with confidence.
At 15 years old, kids can embrace the full certification of a PADI Open Water Diver. If they already have a junior certification, it automatically transfers, and they can simply order a replacement card. With the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, they will dive even deeper, to a maximum depth of 30 meters.
Once they turn 18, new doors open as they can enroll in the PADI Divemaster course – the first step towards becoming a PADI professional. And if they are ready to take on the role of an instructor, the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course is within their grasp.
Aside from keeping your kids entertained and happy during your holiday, introducing them to scuba diving allows the whole family to spend some quality time together. Scuba diving is a shared passion that brings kids and parents together, creating lasting bonds and lifetime memories across the globe.
